The Lake District National Park is a sensitive environmental area. Country Lanes Cycle Centre has a sustainable approach to tourism and we do our best to preserve this beautiful area. Where possible we use local suppliers, recycle products, our Windermere cycle centre is solar powered and we always try to minimise our carbon footprint.
Our cycle centre is conveniently located on Windermere railway station, enabling you to reach us easily and begin cycling straight away. The Lake District is a fantastic area to explore by bike and the views are unforgettable. We do hope you join us for a trip or two this year.
Guy is the company director of Country Lanes Cycle Centre. Born in Kendal, on the Southern edge of the Lake District, he developed a taste for the great outdoors from a very early age.
After leaving university in Manchester, he decided it was time to pack his bags and explore the World, touring Europe, North Africa, India and New Zealand, one of his life long ambitions. On return from his travels, Guy was keen to work in the leisure and tourism industry and put his experience to good use. He joined Centre Parcs as their cycle centre supervisor. Here he gained a profound knowledge of leisure management and the cycle industry, which he has now worked in for over 18 years.
